The argument flipped.

So they say: Believe in God or go to hell.

We say: I see no evidence of God or hell so I don't believe in them.

They say: But what if you're wrong? You better believe just in case.

We say: Oh hell.....


The virus flip....

We say: We need to shelter in place, practice distancing.

They say: It's a hoax. We'll do as we wish.

We say: But what if you're wrong? We'll all suffer for it. You'd better do it because it's a fact.

They say: but Jesus!

Just thinking.

1. Yep

The bullshit requires unplugging one's logic unit. Then it sort of makes sense.

3. The answer to Pascal's Wager is

What if we atheists are right? You'll have lived your whole lifetime in fear of something that doesn't exist, wasting all the time you had to experience joy and wonder crushed by a belief in a vengeful god who approves of neither.

And the answer to the coronavirus is that it is real whether or not their current porcine messiah says it's a hoax and likely most of ius will catch it over time. When they do, will ghey go to a hospital or a church?

4. They'll probably go to the hospital

then say, "It must be God's will. We can't know the mind of God" or "we didn't have enough faith" or "it was Satan's war with God before the apocalypse" or some god of the gaps shit.
